We know that many of you has been waiting for this for weeks (months, years?). Meanwile, this is what we've been working at for so long and even promised to launch in late Spring (and later in July). Ok, for those who don't know what we're talking about -- it's Ultimate Guitar Profiles.
Now in public beta (it's hot in web 2.0 world to call everything "beta", so why not?) and ready to kick everybody's ass. Needless to say, it was the most challenging task we've ever done. Even though the amount of ideas implement is much more than was planned originally, we still have twice more things to implement in upcoming weeks and months.
But let's stop running ahead and look at what we've got today. UG Profiles is a huge step forward making a global community of guitarists and bands worldwide. [At least] we tried to beat similar services out there by targeting this one to guitarists. We hope it was about time to make something just for guitarists, eh? The main difference and the essence of UG Profiles is that everything here is destined for the musicians. Edit your own profile by adding photos of your instruments, describing guitar skils, adding pictures of yours and of course uploading your mp3s! Then, if you're a member of a band, be sure to make a special profile of it to spread the word about your music and find even more friends. And yes, that's just the beginning. We can tell you that things will evolve pretty soon in even better service :)
Ok, go ahead and check your profile now. Check if you're logged in and click the "My Profile" link at the top of the page (I'm sure you've already noticed it ;). Here it is -- your personal profile, where you can upload mp3s, pics, blogs, skills etc. Your public profile link will look like http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/zappp. Ok everything else is clear, I bet you know what to do next.
Enjoy your stay on Ultimate-Guitar [Profiles].
